Point of View -- Shel Silverstein

Guest poem submitted by Salima Virani:
(Poem #1462) Point of View
 Thanksgiving dinner's sad and thankless
 Christmas dinner's dark and blue
 When you stop and try to see it
 From the turkey's point of view.

 Sunday dinner isn't sunny
 Easter feasts are just bad luck
 When you see it from the viewpoint
 Of a chicken or a duck.

 Oh how I once loved tuna salad
 Pork and lobsters, lamb chops too
 'Til I stopped and looked at dinner
 From the dinner's point of view.
-- Shel Silverstein
I don't mean to rain on Vijay's parade (see Poem #1461).  In all
honesty, I love good food too!  But I could not resist sending this one
out as a cheeky retort to Vijay's submission.  Trust Shel to give
perspective to the other side.  The poem is humorous but the point he
gets across is deep and somber!  Remember "The little boy and the old
man" also by Shel Silverstein (Poem # 996)?  That's another classic
example of Shel giving the "other" point of view.

Salima.

I do not leave many comments, but i did a
few searching and wound up here "Point of View -- Shel Silverstein".
And I do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like some of these responses look like written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I'd like to follow anything new
you have to post. Would you list of all of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
